Share this book
When the stakes are this high, evey move has consequences.
Mark Perlstrom is no stranger to money-laundering, drug-smuggling and crooked firms. In the late 1980s he started working for HM Customs and was quickly thrown in at the deep end. He joined Operation C-Chase, an undercover investigation that penetrated Pablo Escobar's mighty Medellin cartel, brought down the corrupt BCCI bank, helped extradite General Noreiga and stopped London's gangs from moving their ill-gotten gains around the capital.
As part of the Uniforms – the new, secret, anti-money-laundering squad – Perlstrom bugged homes, took part in high-speed car chases and played a role in one of the most expensive and elaborate stings ever devised – that was almost scuppered by a US Customs bungle!
Told by a true insider and revealing never-before-told industry secrets, India Uniform Nine lays bare the intense rivalry between covert crime-fighting organisations and shows how that can lead to corruption, chaos and some scarcely believable antics.
